Born to Move
Born to move is an NHS app to help parents or carers with their newborn babies right up to pre-school. It's packed with advice, tips and games that you can play with your child to support their development. The idea came from Julia Haynes, a health visitor at Kent Community Health NHS Foundation Trust, who has worked extensively with health visitors, children's centre staff and local parents on its development.
The Lullaby Trust Baby Check contains 19 simple checks which test for different symptoms or signs of illness. Each check has a score. Go through all checks, the scores will be automatically added. The higher the score the sicker the baby is likely to be. This app has been designed to help you decide whether your baby needs a doctor. Although it is accurate most of the time, its advice cannot be guaranteed. If you are still worried about your baby, consult a doctor.
The Handi App
HANDi has been developed by the paediatric team at Musgrove Park Hospital to provide expert support to parents/carers and medical professionals looking after children with the most common childhood illnesses.
Up-to date research-based information on infant sleep, safety, and development from the Infant Sleep Info Source website (www.isisonine.org.uk).

A great teaching tool for health professionals and resource for parents who want to make informed choices about topics such as co-sleeping, sleep training, and SIDS.
